Windows 7: Copy WindowsImageBackup folder from the 5 DVD set To a External Drive

Copy WindowsImageBackup folder from the 5 DVD set To a External Drive

how can i copy this dvd set to my external hard drive? i just can't copy the files as i think the .vhd files are split and i do not know how to join them. i currently have a windowsimagebackup folder on my external drive which contains my most recent image, but the older one on the 5 dvd's has some files that the new one does not and i really need to retrieve them.

is the only way for me to get them is to restore this previous image from the dvd's; then copy the files to my external drive; then restore the most current windowsimage backup?

any help would be very appreciated..

Hi and welcome to SevenForums!

Don't know if this will work for split DVDs, but maybe someone else knows??
